I have mixed feelings about the news of Bil Laden's death. As horrible as it may seem to say this way, I'm glad that someone who enjoyed killing people is no longer with us. His death does not bring anyone we lost back to us. As some in law enforcement, & government have mentioned, hopefully there will not be any retaliations. I'm thankful that no one on the SEAL team was hurt. As good as these men undoubtedly are, they can be hurt, especially in conditions like that. I can only imagine how the President, & others felt watching this as it unfolded. I have to admit, I'm not big on killing people. Yet this man would have shot me, if we met, simply because I was born in America. This idea, killing/ hating someone because of something they had no choice over... I will never understand.

I've had different emotions about this all day...
and, of course songs...
peace on Earth

long for the day
when there are
cob webs
on tanks
that no longer work
the news of the day
is the death
of sin
and death
is told
"your job
has been phased out,
here's your pink slip"
can live together
no one has to tell
the Devil
to go to Hell
we saw him
put there
the door slammed shut
and forever locked day
not soon enough
my teary eyes
will see
that day
...the day
when we finally
get to say
we got the Hell
outta here...

May His grace drip from your fingers,
